The Twisted Trail By M. Daniel Smith Cover Image


Visceral and violent, all the necessary boxes are ticked. Endurance, treachery and love. The overall effect can, at times, be quite breathtaking. M. Daniel Smith clearly possesses a far-reaching vision and paints a large landscape with a very broad brush. (Excerpted from Historical Fiction Book Company review of the Legacy's Road series, Book One: The Red Path)

The Knutt family saga continues with a new generation taking on the reins of power. Marion remains in the Scottish Highlands, while Aaron heads to the colonies in the latter half of the Revolutionary War, joining a group of insurgents fighting the English. Harold, along with Sinclair and Meghan soon follow, moving to the outskirts of Philadelphia, where they hope to reunite with their son.

A colleague from the past emerges, helping Harold find his son, manipulating them to his own ends, playing a deadly game against the same cabal that threatened Harold's family in a highland draw.

The balance of power shifts from father to son, Aaron fashioning victories against great odds, earning a deadly reputation. He is joined by Chatte, a woman of Acadian background, seeking vengeance against the English, who forced her family from their ancestral lands in Nova Scotia.

Relationships are formed with the Knutt sisters bringing a fourth generation into the story as they struggle to find their own way along a twisted trail, leading from Scotland, to France. From Pennsylvania to South Carolina, then deep into the Ohio wilderness.
